Machine embroidery of natural leather: which needle to use?
As you remember, we’ve spoken about particularities of machine embroidery on natural leather in the according section of this article. So, we’ve make it our point to note that natural leather is never embroidered with needles for leather. Such needles have a wedge point (thus their name – wedge point needles) and their type denotes by the letter “P”. The particular “cutting” point of such needles will cut through leather, rather than punch through it. Thus, if a design is dense, multiple needle cutting will bust the embroidered area out of the rest of the fabric.
So, why do some artists still insist on embroidering leather with wedge point needles? Those, who work with natural leather a lot, know all the minutes of various leather characteristics. They know how various leather types behave during cutting, sewing, stretching, embroidering and other manipulation of the kind. Some leathers, it’s true, are really agreeable and resilient to any type of work, applied to them. Such leathers can withstand wedge needle punching (cutting) with ease. However, only experienced in the area embroiderers will know the difference between leathers of different types. So, for beginners in the trade wedge needles for leather is a big “NO”.Go on reading our blog Choosing fabric for machine embroidery. Part 4. Characteristics of non-woven fabrics.
